This documentary tells the disturbing story of the men closest to Adolf Hitler. Hitler rose to power on his platform of social reforms called National Socialism-or Nazism-but soon turned his attention to world domination and the establishment of a "pure" Aryan race. This resulted in the abomination of the Nazi concentration camps, and the mass extermination of Jews, Gypsies, and other peoples seen as "undesirable". To engage in murder on the scale of that of the death camps, Hitler required assistance. Names like Eichmann and Goebbels are synonymous with this infamy. With actual film footage of German death camps, this chilling film looks at the work of those men.
